Hello,
i have a 250 gig external hard drive that i can put smaller files on it about 2 gigs in size but when i try to put a bigger file for example a 7 gig file it gives me an error tellin me that the hard drive does not have enough space on it to accept the file. anyone else have this problem or have a solution for it.

a FAT32 formatted hard drive has a 4 GB limit on file size. Could this be the problem?
